See Jimmy G look lovingly as Grape Master speaks. Where will you be?


Can I relax or do we already know more layoffs will hit us this year? Any rumours?

When are we getting our 10% back like we were promised by a tearful Mr DeBerry at the Dril-Quip bafta awards ceremony 2 years ago? Christmas perhaps?

Christmas Bonus

I’m hearing on the grapevine that we are going to get a Christmas bonus of around $1200 this year.

DQE now watching there workers everymove with cctv. What a positive way of keeping moral up. This certainly not going to increase production, like they think it’s going to.
